Critic Reviews

"[A] complex tale...sure to attract fans of graphic novels and classic Tolkien alike....Stanek will likely draw a cult following....This cliffhanger guarantees fans, and those fans will be ready to wield their swords against the Dark Lord in Stanek's next installment." (Voice of Youth Advocates)

Absolutely Awesome!

Second better than first and the first was pretty darn good. I've already listened twice. Our whole family is hooked. The reader for these books does an amazing job! I love the voice for Erravane, queen of the wolmerrelle. The story has a breathtaking plot, great description, and action a plenty.

Engaging Listen

As other readers have said, the first book got things going and this one brings it all together. I had to fight with my teens for the ipod so I could get to the end of the story. For the next one we've decided we're going to hook it up to speakers and all listen at the same time. Should be fun!

What continues to make this such a good find for me are the characters. I've enjoyed watching Adrina go through the many changes, and Vilmos maturing somewhat as he continue on with Xith. The world setting is expansive as well. The culture of the kingdoms is very rich, as is the culture of the elves.

The story continues to have mystery as well as fantasy. The mystery is what makes this non-fantasy reader very happy.

As with the previous book, I think this book owns all five stars easily. Again, a well written and delightful listen.

The third book will be released May 31 and we are very excited!

What can I say....Brilliant!!

The most reread able and the most engaging book I have had the fortune to read. After reading this book and being totally enthralled I have in the weeks after finishing reading it have read all the others, and loved them all. Overall this book was fantastic, much better than the first one. Gripping, moving, and most of all entertaining. You have to read this book as it?s the most amazing book ever.
